It was 5 in the morning and I was awake.I didn't sleep all night.
Yesterday, doctor informed us all that Devin needs to undergo an operation for his legs. It costs a huge amount of money, almost $50,000.
Now, initially my worry was about the money. From where will I get this money, how, all possibilities of getting this huge amount were running in my head.But I don't need to worry about that anymore.All thanks to Maria.
On one side, I was really grateful for her to have done that but in the other I didn't want her to. She did this all saying"we're a family now, let me handle. You have nothing to worry about." with a kind smile on her face.
By this she gave me a lot more to worry about. I couldn't just say to her now
"So ....That means you are a virgin?"This time he literally choked on the water he was sipping.I didn't think anyone could ever choke while sipping too. But hey, that's not my problem.Unfortunately I never got the answer to that question. He got an important business call afterwards and offered to drop me off but I refused saying I need to do the grocery. Which was true, I really needed to. This week was my turn.I'll need to call Kat to confirm what all I had to buy. I was never good at doing house chores, especially grocery. I would always forget one or the other thing on the list.I walked towards the main store. It was a bit far away.As I walking, someone bumped into me.And yes, this time I'm sure&n
SCARLETT'S POV____________________________________________________________________Oh god!I'm again late for my class.Why do I never saw up on time? Stupid me!And why do always I have to delete the alarm and they again go back to sleep thinking I have one kind of superpower to wake up on time.Ughh!!"Scar, come out. We are already late."Kat shouts from outside.I quickly put on my shoes and run downstairs.I was halfway down when I remembered I forgot to lock the door.Oh, shit.I immediately run back upstairs and quickly lock the door.I sp
"What? What did you say?""Me? I said nothing. Nothing at all." He gestured to himself saying this.I just turned my head away and continued showing him around.He kept on irritating me with his stupid comments like," oh, yeah, sure you know better." Or " oh, yes, your highness."He and his sarcasm. Ughh!There was this one time, I tripped on my foot and was about to fall face first on the floor but thankfully two strong arms caught me in time, unfortunately...well maybe a bit fortunately, those arms belonged to Mr.Smile.But this time, he was not smiling. He looked truly concerned for me."You never walk carefully. How many times I told you to not try to walk fast in heels?"
SCARLETT'S POV____________________________________________________________________We both went inside.Xander's hand was still on my waist.I guess he was also surprised enough to not notice that.We entered the living hall.Maria was standing there with two other persons. I looked closely at them. The man on the right side of Maria looked strangely as my father and....the woman beside him looked like my mother.Oh, shit! No!They were my father and mother.No , no, no, please tell me Maria didn't call them.They turned around on hearing our footsteps."M
SCARLETT'S POV____________________________________________________________________I came downstairs. My heart was still beating fast after that encounter with Xander. His touch was so warm and lovely.No, no, I shouldn't be thinking like this."Scar, you came. Where's Xander?" My mom asked."Oh, he... he'll be.." I was cut off by Xander himself."I'm here, Mrs. Williams." He said coming downstairs with a .....smile?Wow! He can smile then."You needed me for something?" He asked. He's being so polite and nice
SCARLETT'S POV____________________________________________________________________"What?" I asked."What?" He asked same."What did you just say?""I'll be waiting." He calmly answered."After that."He thought for a minute, " Triantáfyllo."He said it really fast."What does it mean?""What does what mean?""The thing that you just said."
THIRD PERSON'S POV___________________________________________________________________Scarlett moved a little closer to him and put her hands on his hair ruffling them.His hair had a silky texture to them. They were so soft and tender. They felt so good and smooth in her hands.She wondered how did he even has such beautiful hair.It's so unfair boys have so smooth and silky hair. They don't even do much for it.She thought about her hair, how they always get frizzy if she doesn't shampoo them on time. She pouted a bit.Xander's eyes found her pout. She looked like so cute like that, like a little bird. He was enjoying the feeling of her soft and slender fingers in his hair.
SCARLETT'S POV____________________________________________________________________I stood still there. He came more close to me. Our bodies were practically almost touching each other.His intoxicating cologne hit my nose. It smell of masculinity and strength.His deep eyes were staring intensely in my own as if trying to read my soul.I don't know why or how or what....But I always get lost in the beautiful depths of his eyes.I was so busy in admiring him that...Wait.. admiring him? Where did that come from? I need rest , definitely rest. I'm going crazy..huh..He cocked his left eyebrow at me.
